    Hi all! I see lots of question about the side mount chicken nipples- how to install them, general use, training, etc. If you have any questions regarding them, I am more than happy to help! Just post your questions and I'll reply ASAP :D

    I wanted the OP's recommendation...
    ....but it doesn't appear they are replying "ASAP".
     
  7. From what I have gathered over the years, it is usually.....

    11/32" drill bit for PVC or other thick plastic.

    5/16" drill bit for thin plastics.

    All I remember from when I made my 5 gallon bucket is that I had to buy a drill bit for it that was not a common size. Think it was the 11/32nds one.
